In case you’re a fan of flu injections, yet haven’t got round to it, or have wanted to get one, but think you’re too late – you can still get them from any Clicks Pharmacy or Clicks Clinic nationwide.
Experts say that it’s very rare to get an allergic reaction after the jab, and that most people will experience zero flu symptoms, and at most, a mild fever for a day.
A vaccine costs less than R70 from Clicks, and most medical aids will pay for them out of risk, not day-to-day benefits, which means your savings are not affected.
Aside from the vaccine, Clicks recommends the following to keep you and your family healthy this season:
- Wash your hands regularly – Cover up when you cough or sneeze and wash your hands regularly with a waterless hand sanitiser to keep germs at bay.
- Maintain a healthy lifestyle – A healthy diet and lifestyle helps keep your immune system in top shape and ready to fight the virus.
- Boost your immune system with natural medicines like echinacea or African potato extract, as well as multi-vitamins which include Vitamin C and D.
- Avoidance – Try to stay away from those who are sick, and as far as possible do not share personal items. Be wary of crowded spaces where exposure may be high.
